  1. I’m in high school and have three years left but I want to do anything I can to get into a good cosmetology school

  2. Ara, definitely come see us when you graduate from high school! In the meantime, please come in for a service. Our students can give you insider tips!

    1. Hi Christie! Thank you for your question! Yes we do take Federal Financial Aid. Please contact Karen Shea in Admissions at 253-617-7010 or at to discuss any questions you may have about Financial Aid or the program!

  3. I have been thinking about beauty school since I was in high school. I have been graduated for 2 years now and I’m finally figuring out that esthetic is the program I’m leaning towards. I came to the salon about a year ago to talk about the hair and makeup part but now I’m more interested in the skin care after seeing your equipment. I have no knowledge on how to get started or how to figure out financial aid. I’m just lost on how to get my career started. But I know I have a passion that I want to get started, and I don’t want to wait another year.

    Thank you

  4. I’m a Junior in High School and I’ve been super passionate about cosmetology since I was at a young age. I really want to get into the best cosmetology school to perfect my skills and become successful in what I love doing.

  5. Good morning.

    I am 29 years old and have been interested in Cosmetology since I was a kid. I have a 5 year old daughter who I have so much fun doing her hair in several different styles. I was set on going to CPS, but then I heard about this school. My only question is…does this school focus on all types of hair or just one specific kind of hair? I am eagerly wanting to learn and get my hands in all types of different ethnic types of hair.

    Thank you

  6. I’m a sophomore in high school and thinking of getting my ged when I turn 16 in July and going to cosmetology school! Hopefully yours! I was wondering what age you have to be to enroll?

  7. Hi,
    I’m also 16 and also a sophomore/junior in high school and have wanted to do cosmetology for as long as I can remember and hope to be a success in this field of work! I was also wondering what age you need to be to start and if I need any credits or anything extra to be able to start classes.

  8. Looking to start school may 3rd.
    Not sure where to start. Hoping to do a tour of the school. In the morning Wednesday. Or Friday or Saturday.

  9. I am currently going to Cos. School in Idaho, I want to move that way. Is it possible for me to transfer my hours to your school? If so, what is tuition? What are the requirements?

  10. I am a retired RN. All my life I have wanted to be a cosmetologist. Even though I am older, I still love styling my friends hair, doing their makeup, etc. We are just moving to this area from Alabama and love it even though the cost of living is much higher. Would any of my college couses help me get through classes faster? Do you see a problem with me being older? I love a lot of the newer styles on older women.
